Despite the excitement for Saturday’s game between Alabama and LSU, Ed Orgeron announced in Monday’s presser on how the Tigers are experiencing a COVID outbreak on the team.
After defeating the Crimson Tide last season and having a profanity-laced statement in the locker room at Bryant-Denny Stadium, the Tide is out for vengeance. One player from Alabama’s roster that wants LSU is sophomore Byron Young.
The second-year defensive end chose the Tide over LSU, Clemson, Florida, Ole Miss and Mississippi State in the 2019 recruiting cycle. Hailing from Laurel, Miss., Young had a good freshman year and is doing better through six games.
He has 11 total tackles — including three for loss — and carries a quickness and an energy that Nick Saban loves.
Listed at 6-foot-3 and 292 pounds, the former four-star offered some advice to the Tigers via Twitter.

In the aftermath of dealing with Orgeron’s statement, Young and the Tide want all the smoke.
Should the game happen this weekend, CBS will have the call from Tiger Stadium at 5:00 p.m. CT.
